Hours Expanded Queens Library has announced new hours of service as of September 7.

We had been forced to reduce service hours since Fiscal Year ‘02 due to budget restraints. Thanks to support from the Mayor and City Council, our budget reductions were $10 million, and not $14 million, and we’ve been fortunate to receive new grant funds. We are being creative and trying a new service pattern with more morning, evening and weekend service, which still fits within our budget. We are hoping the current funding is not reduced so we can continue this schedule," said Thomas W. Gal-ante, Interim Library Director.

As of September 7, library service in Queens will include thirteen locations that are open Saturdays and nine that are open on Sundays.
